Mojica, strength and attacking projection

Johan Mojica (Santiago de Cali, Colombia, 21/08/1992) is a left-back with great speed, power and who, despite playing in defensive, likes to join the attack and have a large influence in play at the other end of the pitch.

At 30 years of old, the Colombian has a great deal of experience in top-level football, especially in LaLiga Santander. In total, 12 matches with Rayo Vallecano, 31 with Girona and 53 with Elche – a total of 96 games -, are the numbers of the new Villarreal signing in the top flight of Spanish football.

The powerful Colombian defender put in a number of impressive performances, being the Elche CF who completed the most passes (1072), made the most recoveries (234) and won the most duels (127).

Mojica also knows what it is like to play at the highest level outside Spain. In the 2020/21 season, he played for Atalanta, with whom he played 13 Serie A matches and two UEFA Champions League games. He also has featured for his country, Colombia, on a number of occasions: ten World Cup qualifiers, four World Cup games and five friendlies are his numbers as an international.
